The once red-hot semiconductor sector is slowing down, with one team of analysts cutting their stock estimates for the first time in three years. In a recent research note, Morgan Stanley analyst Craig Hettenbach lowered his estimates for the chip sector in the fourth quarter and the year ahead. Hettenbach also reduced his price forecast for seven stocks including Qorvo Inc. ( QRVO), Microchip Technology Inc. ( MCHP), and TE Connectivity Ltd. ( TEL).
